[ [ Moon Phase: Full Moon :full_moon: ] ]

Full-Corn-Moon-Witchcraft-Ritual

Saturday, September 10

This week, the skies will flourish with the beauty of a Full Moon- the moon of September is called the Full Corn Moon :corn:. The exact time of peak illumination will depend on your location.

Explore a special moon ritual and learn more about this moon on the Spells8 Full Corn Moon Ritual Page. As it is the closest full moon to the autumn equinox, it is also called the Full Harvest Moon :basket:- feel free to also check out the Spells8 Full Harvest Moon Ritual for spellwork and more!

Full-Moon-Magic-Spells-Witchcraft

While each moon has its own unique qualities, every full moon is a celebrated time where the energy of the moon is at its most powerful. Now is a wonderful time to charge, cleanse, and absorb the potent energies of the moon.

Great job to each of you, the forum is lucky to have you :heartpulse:

My daughter goes back to school tomorrow morning… new routine set to begin, change is on it’s way :laughing: I do have 2 appointments, which I think I did by accident really. It’s okay though. Get them out of the way at the beginning of the month!

I don’t think I have much else going on except maybe getting to some of the things I have wanted for the last couple of weeks but then getting distracted or otherwise engaged in something entirely different. :rofl:

Thank you for the shout outs! And yay to all my fellow shout outs. Lol if that’s even a thing. I’d mention you all by name but I’m on my phone.

Good news is I should be able to go home tomorrow. Yay! Unless something weird pops up. I don’t think I’ll even need to keep the pic line.

So I’ll be celebrating me being home this full moon. Maybe do that spell I wanted to do for the first quarter moon.

Other than that I don’t have that many plans.

Hope you all have a good week!

Hello everyone! :wave: Happy to say we arrived safe and sound here in Poland a few hours ago- from cars to buses, cabs to planes, boats and by foot, I’m really happy to be out of the land of liminal and back in a familiar bed :bed: :grinning:

Just want to say a very happy merry meet to all of the new members both last week and this week! Welcome to the forum- we’re blessed to have you all here :heart::infinite_roots:

I’ll be sorting through the forum and answering messages/tags this morning- looking forward to catching up on everything! I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy :blush::two_hearts:

Lots of love and blessed be!

Congratulations to all of you! :tada: You’re all much appreciated – thank you for spreading your kindness, wisdom, and empathy throughout the coven :infinite_roots:


@Siofra_Strega – I hope the first day of school went well (as well as could be expected) and that you’re settling into new routines easily :pray: :sparkles:

@Amethyst – Hopefully you’re homeward bound! :full_moon: Do the spell you were wanting to do. The Full Moon is just as good a time as any!

@Janae_Rochele – I’m glad things are looking up for you! :tada:

@TheTravelWitch_Bry – I’m glad to hear you arrived safely! :sailboat: I’ve always wanted to travel by boat but I have nowhere to go :laughing: or the money to get there!

Congrats to all the contributers this week.
Happy to hear your travels went well @TheTravelWitch_Bry .
Not much to report for myself this week, the past few days theres been a weird energy around thats left me feeling drained.
Im finishing my book that I’m reading by Mystic Dylan. Hope plans for a beach trip come through, if the weather agrees.
Got some new trinkets at Target the other day…



Bless-ed Be Witches,
Rowan

I’m so glad to be home! It may not be much but it’s mine and I"m comfy here! Thank you for all your good energy!

And I think I will, I may have to rewrite it a little bit but it should work for the full moon as much as the waxing one.

Glad you had a wonderful adventure and are home safe!

@MeganB Thank you Megan! :heart: Hahaha no destination, no problem! Sometimes the journey itself is the best part of the experience- nothing like losing track of time and reason in a liminal space for a while :laughing: :+1: I feel you about the money, though- trips can add up quickly and in surprising ways :sweat_smile:

Regardless, I hope you’re able to get on a boat and enjoy the seas from on deck someday! So mote it be! :sparkles:


@Rowan Thank you so much, Rowan! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: You’ve got some gorgeous new treasures- enjoy them! I hope your reading and beach trip go well too- blessed be! :sparkles:


@Amethyst Thank you Amethyst, and same to you! :heart: I’m so glad you’re home safe and comfy- get some good rest, my friend! :two_hearts:

@Rowan – A beach trip sounds amazing :heart_eyes: I hope you get to make it! I love your new little trinkets, too. I got something last night at Dollar Tree that I’m excited to put up today :laughing: It’s a Halloween Tree! I’m going to put it on my desk and put some sigils and stuff under it for my ancestors for Samhain, my Gods, and anything else I can think of.

@TheTravelWitch_Bry – One day I’ll get on a boat! :crossed_fingers: It’s on my bucket list lol

Just a general question out of pure curiosity - you live in FL… you’ve never been on a boat? :thinking:
Honestly, I’m just curious because I live on an island off of MA & I know people who not only cannot swim at all, but they have never been on a boat either, &/or don’t eat seafood

(It’s me with the seafood :raising_hand_woman:) I can’t even be around when it’s cooking, but I can make a mean Maryland Crab Cake, it’s a bit tricky but so worth it when all of them are gone before the day is over because the neighborhood loves them :laughing:

Ohh no, no, no. Sorry for the confusion :sweat_smile: I’ve been on a boat! We had a boat when we lived in Oregon that we would take out on the lake. I mean on a boat like…across the ocean to another country :laughing: I love being on boats!
